Equine Affaire’s popular musical celebration of the horse, the Fantasia, is an evening of unforgettable equestrian entertainment that delights horse lovers young and old and creates the perfect ending to a busy day of learning, shopping, and reveling in all things horse-related at Equine Affaire! The 2017 Fantasia will take place at 8:00pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (November 9-11) in the Eastern States Exposition coliseum and will be made possible through the generous sponsorship of Absorbine®.

What to Expect: As the entertainment “cornerstone” of Equine Affaire, the Fantasia is always an uplifting and special reminder of why we love horses—showcasing their beauty, diversity, athleticism, intelligence, and willing spirit. For those not familiar with the Fantasia, it is best described as a “musical celebration of the horse” featuring outstanding equine and equestrian performers from all corners of the nation choreographed to musical styles ranging from traditional and country to classical and contemporary.

Put a lot of great horses, great riders, great music, and an energized audience of diehard horse lovers in one coliseum and—voila!—you have all the ingredients for the Fantasia. The 2017 Fantasia will have just the right blend of drama, fast-paced action, remarkable horsemanship, and amazing horses. From the exhilarating derring-do of Bobby Kerr and his mustangs to mesmerizing Lusitanos taking flight in airs above the ground, the theatrical showmanship of Pirate-costumed Friesians, and the natural beauty of horses performing at liberty with world-renowned trainer and entertainer Sylvia Zerbini, the 2017 Fantasia will be a two-hour feast for the senses that will be the perfect way to cap off the day. Other highlights of the show will include Grand Prix freestyle dressage by Jane Karol, freestyle reining with Bryan Penquite, driving, drill teams and much more, providing plenty of reminders of why we find horses so intoxicating.
